The nose is very important in defining a person’s physical identity. By making subtle revisions with rhinoplasty, Dr. Keith Rose can significantly improve physical concerns and help you achieve your personal aesthetic vision.
However, the procedure offers more than cosmetic benefits. Many Corpus Christi patients opt for rhinoplasty as a way of improving function as well. A single procedure may be able to help you breathe more easily and sleep more comfortably, in addition to achieving cosmetic changes.
Improved Aesthetics. Greater Comfort.
There is no one perfect nose. Because your face has unique features and dimensions, the shape and style of an attractive nose will be different for you than for another patient.
Just as importantly, many rhinoplasty patients want natural-looking change. Subtle revision, rather than dramatic difference, can help you look like the best version of yourself rather than like someone else entirely.
Dr. Rose helps rhinoplasty patients understand different approaches to surgery that will achieve these goals. His techniques may include:
- Redefining your profile.
- Getting rid of a hump in the nose.
- Refining the nose’s tip or increasing projection.
- Repairing traumatic injury and straightening the nose.
He also works to improve structural damage, such as the collapse of the septum. Fixing internal concerns can improve breathing, and these repairs can take place during the same surgical session as cosmetic adjustments.
Visit our Corpus Christi offices for your initial consultation. During your discussion with Dr. Rose, he will evaluate the appearance and function of your nose, talk with you about your goals, and learn about your medical history. Share details of any trauma you might have sustained or breathing trouble you have had as well as any features you would like to accentuate or revise.
While some surgeons limit their time with patients, particularly during the initial consultation, Dr. Rose works differently. He invests time in this meeting because, in his experience, it’s the best way to achieve results that patients will love, especially if combining a rhinoplasty with other facial surgical approaches. It’s also important for giving you confidence in your care and in your decision to have surgery.
Your Experience with Rhinoplasty
Dr. Rose performs rhinoplasty at Corpus Christi hospitals and in our state-of-the-art surgical facility, which includes a private recovery room. Typically, patients receive general anesthesia. Most procedures are performed with an “open approach” so that Dr. Rose can work at a more detailed level, though he can perform some simpler revisions utilizing a “closed” approach.
Your rhinoplasty may take from 3 to 4 hours. Most patients take about 1 week off from normal daily activities and 3 – 6 weeks from physical exertion. Dr. Rose and our staff can offer you guidelines for a more comfortable recovery.
Once your swelling has gone down, you should notice a subtle-but-significant change in your appearance. Surgery should make it much easier for you to breathe and give you an attractive nose in balance with your other features.
A single procedure may be able to improve the aesthetics of your nose and daily discomfort with breathing. Schedule your rhinoplasty consultation with our Corpus Christi office by calling (361) 651-1200.
